  1. Repair Specialist in Cheshire

    Alfa Giulietta
    I own a 2012 Alfa Romeo Giulietta and am looking for a trusted and reasonable repair shop in Wilmslow / Cheshire area. The air conditioning compressor clutch has fallen apart and cut through the lower intercooler hose. Any recommendations for garages would be greatly appreciated.
  2. Literature or books on 105 series / recommendation / review

    General Alfa Discussion
    I'm new here and wish to learn more about the 105 series, saloon and coupes. There appears to be a few options. Can anyone recommend a book, give a book review or point me in the right direction? Thanks Paul.
  3. Drop in air filter recommendation

    Alfa MiTo
    Dear all, I have just gotten a 1.4TB (114kw/ 155bhp). I like to have some sound on the turbo spool or oosh but not willing to have the one with open pod which is way too noisy and loud. Just something better than stock will be good. Will BMC or K&n be able to achieve that?
  4. 2.5 V6 oil recommendation

    Alfa 164 & 166
    From your experience with Busso's, what oil is the best for them? I want to change my oil and I'm thinking at Ravenol or Liquid Moly, or of course Selenia, but this is an expensive option. Castrol or Mobil 1, I don't trust them, horror story behind. I'm looking for a smooth and quiet engine, and...
  5. A Tyre Company Recommendation

    General Alfa Discussion
    Please call me an idiot. Didn’t see the rock protruding onto a Cumbrian mountain road and ran over it. The front n/s tyre burst with an impressive bang – none of your pathetic hissing punctures. Praise be to Alfa for the spare. I’d still be there if it had been a tube of splooge. Middle of...
  6. Oil recommendation for 156 1.9 JTDM

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I have had a look online and I can get these two 5W40 oils: -PETRONAS SYNTIUM 3000E (5LTR) £28.14 -SELENIA WR 5W/40 - 5LTR £19.43 Last time I did an oil change, I did it myself. I used Selenia WR5W40 and I must say that the engine felt a tiny bit noisier. Before that, the oil change was...
  7. Garage recommendation for Woking, Surrey

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hi All, I'm a recent Giulietta 1.6 diesel owner. I am looking for a local garage which comes with some recommendations. I have a bad experience a while ago on my old car and don't fancy the same again... I need someone to do a service and reset the oil light. Then I need someone to do a...

    I'm looking for a set of front mud flaps for a Brera to keep the stone chips off the wheel arches and sills and came across these below. Can anyone recommend them ... or another set? https://www.performancecreations.co.uk/alfa-brera-black-mudflaps-brera-logo-white-2535-p.asp
  9. Professional Detailer Recommendation - Midlands

    Car Detailing
    Hi, Due to take receipt of new Veloce next week Alfa Red. Looking to possibly have the front & bonnet treated with PPF but trying to establish who are the good guys from the bad is very difficult. If anyone can recommend a detailer around the Rugby, Daventry, Leicester, south Coventry way, I...
  10. 18" turbine wheel sealant recommendation?

    Car Detailing
    Hi Can anybody on here recommend a good wheel sealant for the 18" diamond cut turbines? I'm mostly wondering as they have that satin anthracite finish, and I don't want them too shiny. Thanks in advance. Edit: I'm a big fan of Poorboys products, does anybody have experience with their wheel...
  11. Dashcam recommendation ?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, Have acquired a TOGUARD CE39 Dash camera that wasn't originally intended for the GTV, it's one of those mirror types that clip over the existing. Unfortunately it doesn't fit the GTV which is a shame as it aint a bad bit of kit.. you can't get enough forward pitch on the mirrror to see...
  12. Recommendation for parts please...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Planned jobs for the coming weeks and months include a new thermostat on the Spider and a bit of suspension work on the GTV. Been looking at prices etc and even from reputable Indys there’s quite a difference in prices. For example Alfaworkshop have 3 possible thermostats... genuine Alfa, Behr...
  13. Paint shop recommendation

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, So my GTV is nearing completion. Had it for 3 or so years now & spent approaching 20k all told on her (including initial purchase cost). She's a keeper, in other words. It had a bare metal respray only as recently as 2012. That didn't work so well; it's already bubbling under the rear...

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi All, I have misplaced my OBD2 USB KKL VAG COM interface and green/yellow/red adapters :disappointed: Have searched high and low for months now but no luck, so I'll have to replace them. It's a good while since I bought these so I'm wondering if there is anything updated that I should...

  18. 2.4 clutch recommendation

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi All I will need to replace my clutch at some point soon. A small amount of slip has been going on for a while if really booting it in high gear. Not a real issue as it manageable so never causes a problem. I've just had remap etc which will no doubt accelerate this issue again tho its...
  19. Leather seat polish recommendation

    Car Detailing
    I have been using Turtlewax Essential leather conditioner in my '57 159 2.4 JTDM on the black leather seats. However, I now seem to have all that I can describe as "blushing" on the leather or maybe a sort of spotting. It rubs off but within a couple of days comes back. Mostly oticeable on the...
